About this Episode

Was the Incarnation plan B? Did God know we would sin? How do I talk to my 5-year-old who has been exposed to the LGBTQ ideology?

Ask Christopher West is a weekly podcast in which Theology of the Body Institute President Christopher West and his beloved wife Wendy share their humor and wisdom, answering questions about marriage, relationships, life, and the Catholic faith, all in light of John Paul II’s beautiful teachings on the Theology of the Body.

Patron Question:
I'm confused about God’s original plan and you saying that the Word made flesh wasn't God’s secondary plan after the original sin. What does this mean? Why would God send His son if there was no sin?

Question 2:
Did God know that human beings were going to sin and was original sin in his plan?

Qestion 3:
My oldest daughter attended a Catholic preschool and kindergarten at a charter school. The reason I share this is because I thought she would be protected from LGBTQ issues there, more than if she were to attend public school. I must be naive. In preschool, my daughter was told by a peer that her mother told her “girls can marry girls and boys can marry boys.” After the first week of kindergarten, my daughter overheard a teacher telling students that she grew up with two dads. Even though I have a deep passion for John Paul II’s Theology of the Body, I feel unprepared to address these issues at such a young age. Do you have advice for how to answer questions like these from my 5-year-old?
